AUGUST 24, 1833

LEGISLATIVE bustle is the order of the day. Our Representatives enact laws with such rapidity, that the panting chroniclers of their proceedings in the Gallery "toil after them in vain;" and their only resource is to bundle up bills together by the score. with the satisfactory and instructive announcement to the public, that "several bills were passed through their different stages." We shall have ample time during the recess to mark the consequences of making laws in a hurry; and when the next session commences, the numerous motions "for leave to bring in a bill to amend an act passed during the last session of Parliament," will prove how much worse ill-conditioned legislation is, than no legislation at all.
